As of March 30, the 2020 Greening Up The Mountains Festival has been canceled. Email notifications were sent out to vendors with details regarding the cancellation of the festival. All vendors will receive a full refund of their vendor application fees. If you have not received your refund by June 1, 2020, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to working with our wonderful vendors next year.
NORTH CAROLINA SALES TAX ID NUMBER
Vendors from the expanded Appalachian area are encouraged to apply and participate in our festival. The State of North Carolina requires that all festival vendors obtain an North Carolina Sales Tax Number and display it in their booth on the day of the festival. You can obtain a free North Carolina Sales Tax Number online by visiting the North Carolina Department of Revenue Website. If you already have a North Carolina Sales Tax Identification Number, there is no need to re-apply.
ARTS AND CRAFTS VENDORS
All Arts and Crafts vendors must be engaged in selling their arts and crafts that are handmade and/or locally produced. No retailers or independent consultants selling non-handmade products will be accepted to the festival.
Vendors selling food items which require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Food Vendor Application. Others selling specialized food products such as popcorn, shaved ice, ice cream, or similar items which do not require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Artisan and Crafters Vendor Application.
The GUTM Festival has implemented a new process for Non-Profit Organizations. Nonprofit Organizations will be notified regarding the status of their application by April 5, 2020.
Fees: $90 for all non-profit organizations that are accepted. Due by April 15, 2020.
